Best bet is to buy a JTIS manual on eBay.

Basically, remove serpentine belt by releasing the pulley with a 15 mm socket and bar.
Unbolt old tensioner and install new one.
Reinstall new serpentine belt.

It's a tight space but with patience and a good socket set it is relatively easy.

Air conditioning problems


First check that all electrical connections to/from your air conditioning components are tight and secure with no broken or chaffed wires and connectors, or oil swollen connection points. Then check that all fuses and relays involved in the operation of your air conditioning system are operational. If all is good, then remove the belt around the air conditioner compressor pulley. Get a wrench and try to turn the front of the compressor pulley. It should turn with little to no resistance. If it wont move or is very hard to turn, it is probably locked up and needs repair or replacement. If it moves, then the compressor part is OK, but your clutch would likely need replacement. Some model cars its cheaper to just replace the whole compressor than to rebuild the clutch. Jaguar sounds expensive - I would seek out a junk yard. Good luck.

How do i install serpentine belt on 1999 Gran Am Se 3.4l engine


Click on the following Link. It has the Serpentine Belt you will need.

The standard rule to removal the Serpentine Belt:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Rotate/Move the Tensioner away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.

3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.

http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/1999/make/pontiac/model/grand_am/1999_pontiac_grand_am_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm

Standard Rule for putting it back on:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.

Jaguar xj6 1982 model/mechanics


It could be as bunnydawg suggested but thiers quite a few other things that could cause that sound.You need to be a little more specific as any of the rotating parts,drive shaft etc,could be the cause of the noise.If not the engine making that noise which is odd as it only gets noisy at specific times,60 and up Check drive shaft uni joints,tyres and harmonic balancer also make sure none of the front pulleys arnt loose.Good luck
